Essential oils are being used for nearly 6,000 years, to improve a person’s health and mood. Aromatherapy is a perfect blend of both art and science. Recently, aromatherapy has gained more recognition in the fields of medicine and alternate sciences. it is known to have both physical and psychological benefits.
Humans are using aromatherapy for thousands of years now. Ancient cultures in China, India, Egypt, and elsewhere started infusing aromatic plant components in resins, balms, and oils. These natural substances were used for medicinal and religious purposes.
Medical doctors became more established and organized near the 19th century and focused on using allopathic treatment and drugs. However, the French and German doctors still acknowledge the role of natural botanicals in treating illness. The term “aromatherapy” was coined by a French perfumer and chemist René-Maurice Gattefossé in a book he wrote on the topic that was published in 1937.
